Why is an drug addict's way of risking his life less valid than any
other thrill seeker's?
Because they imperil the innocent, seed crime, ruin society.
How does someone's addiction to a drug seed crime?
Stop avoiding the citations and you'll know, ya dumb fuck canuck!
Because alcohol use is legal and pervasive, it plays a particularly
strong role in the relationship to crime and other social problems.
Alcohol is a factor in 40% of all violent crimes today, and according to
the Department of Justice, 37% of almost 2 million convicted offenders
currently in jail, report that they were drinking at the time of their
Alcohol, more than any illegal drug, was found to be closely associated
with violent crimes, including murder, rape, assault, child and spousal
abuse. About 3 million violent crimes occur each year in which victims
perceive the offender to have been drinking and statistics related to
alcohol use by violent offenders generally show that about half of all
homicides and assaults are committed when the offender, victim, or both
have been drinking. Among violent crimes, with the exception of
robberies, the offender is far more likely to have been drinking than
under the influence of other drugs.
Alcohol is often a factor in violence where the attacker and the victim
know each other. Two-thirds of victims who were attacked by an intimate
(including a current or former spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend) reported
that alcohol had been involved, and only 31% of victimizations by
strangers are alcohol-related. Nearly 500,000 incidents between
intimates involve offenders who have been drinking; in addition, 118,000
incidents of family violence (excluding spouses) involve alcohol, as do
744,000 incidents among acquaintances.

Opiates are cheap to
produce and it would cost peanuts to keep someone high on drugs if they
could do it legally. Heroin can be bought for $2 per gram in
Afghanistan, where much of it is produced, but it costs $200 per gram in
the US. It is the criminal status of it and the risk taken by black
marketeers that drives up the price to the point where people have to
rob and steal to get the money for their habit.
Just what we need, a populace DOPED out on cheap legal drugs.
WTF is wrong with you anyway?
You spent your life hassling truckers and this is the best you can offer!
